Nka Foundation

Nka Foundation exists to serve underserved communities through use of the arts and design education. We do this by creating a network of arts villages where the global community comes to engage in projects to inspire the needy communities to sustainable development. Nka Foundation’s arts village projects draw on asset-based approach to community development through mobilization of existing, but often unrecognized abundant local resources to help the rural community drive their development process.  This involves creative research and use of local materials and vernacular methods used in the region to create arts and design products. Throughout the year, the Foundation organizes international workshops that invite volunteer-sending organizations, university students, arts and design professionals and international development experts to immerse in the local lifestyle and collaborate with the local people on projects for exchange of knowledge and skills.
